The Daily Illini

Miles Powers-Huang
I am a junior studying journalism. My first assignment at The Daily Illini was covering soccer. I then covered women’s basketball before being promoted to assistant sports editor. I am from Oak Park, Illinois. I’m the person you go to for a completely random fact or statistic about a player or game. When I’m not covering sports, I like to play FIFA and pickup basketball.
